Sugar Desalination

Desalination involves removal of ions from the sugar solution using ion exchange resins.
Cation exchange resins remove positive ions such as Na, Ca, K and Fe, as well as ampholytic components such as amino acids. Anion exchange resins remove negative ions such as Cl and SO4, as well as weak acid components such as organic acid, silica, coloring matter and coloring matter precursors. Off-flavors and odors are also removed through desalination, and the stability during storage of the sugar solution is improved.
